How did you find your wedding vendors? The internet has obviously revolutionized the vendor search process, expanding your knowledge past word of mouth recommendations from friends and family to an online world of real weddings, price comparisons, and newlywed reviews! Smiley star

Today, nearly 80% of couples consider reviews very important in deciding whether or not to hire a vendor. Did you find your wedding vendors through traditional word of mouth recommendations, or did you do your own searches online?

    Modern. The only vendor we heard about via word of mouth was our caterer, and we still checked out their reviews before showing them any interest.

    Modern, have done all the searches online. The only one that is somewhat traditional is my venue which we found at a bridal expo.

    A mix of both! Venue was word of mouth but everything else has been through WW or The Knot

    Modern. Most of our research was done online. We met a few vendors at a bridal show and then went online and read a ton of reviews.

    A mix of both. I definitely read reviews for everything but some vendors I've been following for years (photographer) and already knew they'd be booked, some I searched for, and some were recommended to me.

    Traditional. Everything so far has been recommended to us but we also went to a bridal show at our venue and got to meet several vendors at once which also helped a lot. So would that be considered modern too? I am not sure. Lol

    I did online searches but in the end I found ours on FB looking at pictures of an old coworkers wedding, her venue was beautiful and very reasonable, so that's the one we went with.

    A mixture of both, but WeddingWire really helped me find most of my vendors.
